Though I cannot answer for your specific model, I have a Lexmark E232 which 
runs fine in FreeBSD with the CUPS system (ports/print/cups) using the 
Generic PCL 5e Printer Foomatic/ljet4 driver (ports/print/foomatic*).

If there is no specific driver for the Z35, you can probably make your printer 
work with emulation (like I am using).
